Social and Political Philosophy: A Free Online Course

From John Sanders, Professor of Philosophy at the Rochester Institute of Technology, comes the course, Social and Political Philosophy. In 10 lectures, Sanders “examines some of the main problems of social and political philosophy through an analysis, comparison and critical examination of various views concerning the natures of individuality and society and the relations between them.” Thinkers covered include Aristotle, Hobbes, Locke, Mills, Marx, Engels, Hayek and Rawls. You can stream all the lectures above, or find them all on this YouTube playlist.

Social and Political Philosophy will be added to our list of Free Philosophy Courses, a subset of our collection, 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
